A short sail from the crane to the open waters of Lake Ontario, our location on Toronto’s Western Gap can’t be beat!
If your goal is to spend more time out on the water improving your sailing skills and competing in a supportive, fun environment, National has the racing programs for you and your crew. We offer three nights of weeknight racing plus access to local weekend regattas. With One Design, PHRF, Women’s and Beginner Fleets – NYC has it all! Our well-run and competitive Club Racing is organized by an experienced team of Race Committee volunteers. With courses set nearby in the consistent breezes off Toronto Island, our superb harbor location makes for a short sail, or motor, to the race course.
If you’re looking for One Design in Drysail, look no further. Our existing fleet of Shark, Melges 24, J/24, J/70, Etchells, Star and 2.4mR are always ready to welcome new members!

Shark Fleet
With competitive and exciting fleet racing, NYC’s Shark fleet is the largest in the GTA and growing. You'll take your Shark sailing to a new level with back-to-back windward-leeward races every Tuesday evening from May through October. We boast Shark World, Canadian, Provincial and North American champions in our fleet – so you can head out to the start line with the best! Our fleet is welcoming and focused on improving the skills of every sailor on the water. Get in touch with one of our Shark Fleet Captains today! [email protected]

2.4mR Fleet
NYC’s 2.4mR fleet welcomes sailors of all abilities! This single-handed “mini-keelboat” is designed with helmsperson in a seated position, making it a level playing field for young, old, less mobile and for sailors with a disability. Our current fleet of 14 includes casual day-sailors and competitive racers who race informally on Thursday evenings in NYC’s nearby basin. If you’re looking for a great way to get out on the water, but aren’t interested in the hassle of finding crew, this is the boat and fleet for you!
